Global Warming

I recently saw a statistic that 1 in 4 Americans were skeptical of global warming and its damage to the world. TO be quite frank I found this disturbing and I would like to challenge anyone who believes Global warming is a farce to debate this prudent issue....

TheDebater_101

PrefaceThis is a truly relevant issue, and a topic of major debate between liberals and conservatives. There is heated disagreement on the issue between the Democratic Party and Republican Party, and climate skeptics and modelers debate this over multiple studies based on empirical research. Due to this, I have decided to discuss this issue that is extemely relevant today. I hope for a great discourse. TheDebater_101 has asked...

Scientists have no proof that humans are responsible for a significant amount of global warming.

HandsOff
TheRaven

There, I said it. And it's true. Even scientists who "believe" humans are largely repsonsible for recent temperature changes will admit they do not have definitive proof. The PR campaign of the left claiming scientists "have reached" a consensus implies the research is finally complete. However, a "consensus" is only 51 percent, and no one is stopping to consider that legitimate science is a product of fact and not popularity or speculation in the absence of conclusive evidence. The liberals and...

Data from multiple sources seem to point to the same conclusion. Average temperature indicators since the Industrial Revolution as well as increasing intensity of weather patterns in recent years, and historical trends in levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have convi...
